MANICALAND–BASED BUSINESSMAN IN TROUBLE FOR HOSTING ALICK MACHESO AT BIRTHDAY PARTY OVER NEW YEAR’S EVE

SUNGURA music exponent Alick Macheso as well as a Manicaland-based businessman are in trouble with the police after the musician performed at a family birthday celebration in Watsomba and also tried to hold another show in Mutare on 31 December contrary to current regulations against the spread of the coronavirus.

ZRP Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi told ZBC News that police are concerned about reports that a certain businessman hired Macheso to perform at a family birthday celebration in Watsomba, Manicaland.

“The businessman is now also facing charges of contravening covid-19 regulations, where it is said twenty people attended the celebrations, but we want to verify.

“We are also aware that Macheso had been hired to perform on the 31st of December by another businessman in Mutare. That event was stopped by the police. So we want musicians to be responsible. Let’s not take for granted the issue of COVID-19.”

He added: “Musicians should comply with covid-19 regulations. Business-people should comply with covid-19 regulations. This includes members of the public. Please, please, let us not wait for the police to force us to wear a mask, to practise social distancing, to sanitise.”

This comes as fifty-two people have been arrested as police investigate circumstances surrounding a music concert held in Harare’s Mbare suburb on New Year’s Eve.

Nyathi said they are looking for the chief suspect in the case, popular music promoter, Fantan, who is allegedly on the run.
